During the same period, environmental police officers carried out almost 1,956 field visits, which involved businesses (1,181 visits), industrial enterprises (20), commercial and professional enterprises (224) and municipal and weekly markets (32), in addition to 493 different visits.

The number of officers in the municipalities of Greater Tunis (Tunis, Ben Arous and Ariana and Manouba) reached 163, while the number of municipalities involved in environmental police services in the first phase is 30 municipalities.

The environmental police officially start work on June 13, 2017.

In an interview given to TAP, Local Affairs and Environment Minister Riadh Mouakhar described the work of this body as “satisfactory.”

The government opted for a trial and awareness period of one month instead of going directly to the sanction phase, the minister said.

He adds that the objective assigned to the trial period is to give the officers and especially citizens time to become familiar with this body.
